Here's the gist of one incident mentioned in Fossen's research report:
Vanuatu granted 3 tote licences to:
Allan Tripp - convicted numerous times of illegal SP betting.
Christopher Chung - convicted for importing prostitutes, and exporting contaminated seafood.
VITAB - beneficiary ownership unfathomable - run by Peter Bartholomew, Tripp's brother in law.
Chung cut a kickback deal with VicTAB.
VITAB's 11% owner Hawke cut a kickback deal with ACTTAB.
VITAB's 20% owner and biggest customer was Zeljko plus sidekick.
When the ACT parliament kyboshed the scam, VITAB sued, and ACT taxpayers forked out over $3 million to settle.
